LA Times Calendar Section Loses Another Body

Company Town editor John Lippman is the latest to leave the Los Angeles Times Calendar section. He’s off to New Hampshire, where he’ll be the editor of a small town paper.

Lippman is the 14th voluntary exit from the Calendar section in a little under two years, an unusually high rate of departures at a time when newspaper jobs are increasingly hard to come by. We’ve heard grumblings about the section’s editor, Sallie Hofmeister, but as Kevin Roderick points out, Lippman was a Hofmeister hire, and his departure is apparently nothing to do with his boss.

After the jump, the updated list of Calender refugees:

  1. Kate Aurthur (TV editor)
  2. Elizabeth Snead (blogger)
  3. Denise Martin (reporter)
  4. Pete Hammond (Envelope writer)
  5. Tom O’ Neil (Envelope writer)
  6. Richard Rushfield (web editor/writer)
  7. Joseph Kapsch (web editor)
  8. Rachel Abramowitz
  9. Chris Lee
  10. Ann Powers
  11. Tim Swanson
  12. Matea Gold
  13. Maria Elena Fernandez
  14. John Lippman
